Dragon zombies (ドラゴンゾンビ Doragon Zonbi) are enemies in the Egg Corridor?. They are the "living" carcasses of baby Sky Dragons that were killed as a result of the explosion.

Physical Appearance[]

Dragon zombies are turquoise in color, similar to that of the Undead Core. They have a white underbelly and red eyes that cry blood. Their tails, ears and feet are also the same shade of blue. The head is perceptively bigger than the rest of their body.


Dragon zombies are found in the Egg Corridor And The Egg Corridor? They remain in one spot for the duration of their appearance in the game. And will turn to face Quote on the side that is closest to them.

When approaching, dragon zombies open their mouths to let out a dangerous stream of fireballs dealing 10 HP upon contact. These fireballs cannot pass through walls, and dissolve on contact upon them.

Defensive Techniques[]

The player must deal 51 HP worth of damage to kill a dragon zombie. This can be done with a single maximum charge blast from the Spur or a level 3 Super Missile Launcher. A dragon zombie can also be killed from falling stalactites if it is positioned under a loose one that Quote himself can pass from below.

When a dragon zombie is killed, it collapses to the ground and becomes a dragon carcass like the ones found earlier on the journey through the Egg Corridor?. Instead of multiple experience points, Dragon Zombies leave behind one large experience point (worth 20).
